What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Its 2017 and you still haven't found the ideal 3d printer?

There are 3D printers of all kinds, FDM / fast / high res , each fit for one particular group: hobbists, makers, engineers, jewelers...however there is still no printer thought out for Artists. We want our printer to fit their needs: Large build size, High Resolution, Fast, and Stable.

Have you ever tried.. 

Finally we have come up with a solution:

 SLA TOP DOWN PRINTING

The Highest Stability

Without gravity and the peeling force common in bottom up printers, there will be no failure because of detachment or breakage in the print itself. With Milkshake3D top down printing, the build panel will move down the resin tank at a steady rate avoiding mishaps.

 Integrating industrial level 3D printer into your studio.

 

 For every print layer, the wiper system maintains always the smoothest surface and refill resin for print area, astonishing result especially for large print surface.

With DLP projection technology, printing time depends on model's height. With our exclusively large build platform, batch print as many items as you like all at once.

 Easy Switching Print Size

Just a click to switch printing size from 150um to 50um. Projector will lift automatically to its target position, slightly manual focusing the calibration image, its ready to print.

3D printing hub - Work alone, but we share. 

Milkshake3D is a stand alone wi-fi 3D printing hub. You don’t need a workstation bundled with it. It means that everyone in your studio could easily upload models for printing, control the printer or check out printing status.  

Support multi users controlling at the same time.  

Print & Resin Preset  

Resin has all different properties and exposure time. We have fully tested with FunToDo's resin and have integrated the best print settings for you. Simply upload your model, choose your material and one click to go. Of course, you could also make your own setting as save to presets.

 Demo Walkthrough: From Model to Print

*Support structure in development  

 

Milkshake3D is created by Orbi Lab, a group of 3D artists and engineers passionate and with years of experiences in creatives, productions and electronic development. As 3D artists ourselves, there is nothing more exciting than seeing your own creations come alive in reality. For over a year of development, we designed and built the machine from our own user perspective and today, we are glad to have it published for everyone.

 

  

 

 

 

--- Resin ---

Top Down + Large Print = Lots of resin needed?  

Indeed, we have a large tank. But we took advantage of resins' floating properties. You may use glycerine(or saline water) to fill up the tank, leaving just 1cm to 2cm for printing resin, which means only One litre of resins needed as a base.    

- Will it affect the print quality?  

We have been using this system for all of our prints and you can see how high standard they are. Of course, if you looking for a production standard, you may use full tank of resins.  

 - Does it goes well for castable resin too?  

Yes, we print castable ring with glycerine too and it doesn't have any affect. Keeps a thick enough resin layer.

--- Warranty ---  

We offer a one year hardware warranty(Exclude DLP lightbulb). If unfortunately you have any parts defected, we will ship you the parts to replace.

Risks and challenges

We feel well equipped to mass produce Milkshake3D on time. We have manufactured few Milkshake3D Printers and sent to our beta users.
From sourcing to parts manufacturing, we have tried different providers and come up with those reliable one we are partnering with right now.
We will keep you up to date in every production stage we are.
